I have an issue I believe to be in the transmission. When coming to a stop the trans disengages and I have to rev engine a couple of times to get gear in place to drive. Today when starting out, vehicle had major trouble getting into reverse and drive was seemingly limited to 1st gear with very little power. Some gear change hesitation while driving lately.
Yes you have a Transmission problem that is only going to get worse.
There is nothing to do now that will solve this problem. You can pull the dipstick and look/smell the fluid to verify this but unfortunately the only thing to do now is have the transmission rebuilt/replaced.

Best thing to do is get the ECM on the jimmy scaned for codes. I believe Auto Zone will scan for free and some transmission shop as long as there honest will scan the ECM too and let you know what you realy need.
The ECM controls the transmission and if there is any conflicts between the transmission or engine the Jimmy will go on a limp mode and your transmission will not shift to OD and may seam to be slipping.
If it is a transmission problem the scan will pick it up, same as to if it's a engine problem.
Good luck and hope this helps, Just trying to save you some money by finding out what is causing the problem.
Personally, I'd drop the trans pan and give a look...but, best advice I can give you is to get to a REPUTABLE trans shop ASAP and not drive it unless its an emergency 'till then (more you drive, more damage you will do) The way a transmission is assembled, makes just about anything impossible without teardown. And yes...only one filter in there.
Put the transmission in neutral, emergency brake off, foot off the brake pedal, now try shifting out of 4 wheel drive low. If that doesn't work, drive forward, and again do the above, trans. in neutral, roll to a stop, foot off brake, try to disengage. What you're probably experiencing is called drive shaft 'wind up', and it is very difficult to disengage, but do the above and it should shift out of 4 low. countrycurt0
